Nice SD Julien Fournier trying to convince Pape Matar Sarr of a move

L’Équipe report that OGC Nice’s Sporting Director Julien Fournier is attempting to convince 18-year-old Senegalese midfielder Pape Matar Sarr to make a summer move from fellow Ligue 1 side FC Metz.

Fournier, who is also attempting to sign PSG youngster Kays Ruiz Atil, is said to have travelled to Senegal recently to meet Sarr’s family. It is believed that Fournier’s efforts will fail as young midfielder, who signed a 5-year contract with Les Grenats in autumn, is already seeking a move to a club of higher standing, with several major outfits abroad also interested.

Les Aiglons are also said to be interested in signing 18-year-old Sochaux forward Alan Virginius this summer.
